Yuuta Okkotsu is haunted. Ever since his childhood friend Rika died in a traffic accident, her ghost has stuck with him. But her spirit does not appear as the sweet girl Yuuta once knew. Instead, she manifests as a monstrous and powerful entity who fiercely protects him. Unable to control Rika's violent behavior, Yuuta is helpless to stop the bloodshed that follows from her brutal vengeance. As a result, when apprehended by "Jujutsu" sorcerers—the secret guardians of the world, trained to combat forces like Rika—Yuuta wishes to be completely isolated so that no one else can get hurt.

Yet his apprehender, the master sorcerer Satoru Gojou, has different plans for him: he will join Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School and learn to control Rika in order to help people. Now a first-year at this school, Yuuta starts to learn Jujutsu arts and combat malignant beings. Alongside his new classmates Maki Zenin, a Jujutsu weapons expert; Toge Inumaki, a spellcaster who uses his words as weapons; and Panda, a seemingly walking and talking panda bear, Yuuta begins to find his place in the world and, for once, to feel comfortable with his abilities. However, as his training progresses, Yuuta comes to learn that the dangers of the Jujutsu world go far beyond that of wicked spirits.

Jujutsu Kaisen 0: Tokyo Toritsu Jujutsu Koutou Senmon Gakkou is the prototype serialization of Jujutsu Kaisen. The story remains canon to the main series and it features a different central cast. Character designs used in this prototype were later altered in the main series; for instance, Toge Inumaki's initial design was later used for Jujutsu Kaisen's main protagonist Yuuji Itadori, while Toge underwent a redesign.

It was published in English as Jujutsu Kaisen 0 by VIZ Media under the Shounen Jump imprint on January 5, 2021.

So as a prequel to Jujutsu Kaisen I think this works really well. Coming from someone who read the actual manga before this it was nice to see some more background for characters like Maki, Inumaki, Panda, and Gojo. I was a huge fan of Inumaki already because of his cursed speech but I really liked the characterization that we got in these few chapters. A character that usually only speaks in rice ball ingredients is obviously difficult but they do a great job of giving him depth despite that. I really like Yuuta's character and I think he could end up playing a big ...

Mixed Feelings
As a prequel to Jujutsu Kaisen, this manga does everything it needs to and nothing really more. While not incredibly engaging it delivers a small mini-arc that is all together serviceable and enjoyable. The art is similar in quality to the main manga, that is to say not entirely impressive, but quirky in its own way.

The characters within the piece are enjoyable enough, though the over powered teacher figure feels slightly bland compared to his decently diverse students. The manga follows pretty standard character archetypes from shonen manga of the past. What comes most to mind is Bleach in how the villain and the ...

It's alright for a one shot.

Maki and Inumaki aren't used the best as side characters.

Yuuta is a meh protagonist and is sometimes he's annoyingly overpowered.

There isn't much of a well constructed plot but what do you expect for a one shot?

The art is fine but I much prefer Gege's new art style over his old one.
